Guerlain’s creative director Olivier Échaudemaison developed Rouge G de Guerlain ($45) to capture the quintessence of luxury in an object dedicated to the lips.

To achieve this vision, Guerlain turned to Place Vendôme jewelry designer Lorenz Bäumer who drew inspiration from a bar of gold, but placed the lipstick horizontally and added feminine curves.

Carrying through the vision for elegance, he created a magnetic mechanism to reproduce the air-releasing effect of an antique powder case.

Click, and the white-gold coated case reveals a mirror and a lipstick nestled within. More like a chic accessory, Rouge G unites the qualities of a powder case, a jewel and a precious lipstick. Available in 25 shades at fine department stores.

Homemade Lip Balm

When your lips are chapped and dry, don’t reach for store-bought products containing parabens and petroleum. Mineral oils and additives dry out the sensitive skin, temporarily soothing, but in the end, resulting in the need for more and more product to keep lips luscious and moisturized. Instead, mix up one of these simple recipes in your home. Each stores well at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, for up to six months. They make great gifts for friends and family, or provide a fun activity for a group gathering or sleepover.

Essential oils can be added to each of these recipes for scent and soothing properties. I recommend no more than 4 drops per ounce, meaning 4 drops maximum for the Simple Chap Stick, 10 drops maximum for the Basic Balm, and maximum 8 drops for the Lip-Saving Salve. In the latter two, you may also substitute cocoa butter for shea butter and add a drop or two of chocolate extract for a rich cocoa-scented lip treat!

Simple Chap Stick

Makes about 1 oz (4 1/4-oz chap stick tubes)


  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup beeswax flakes or pellets
  • 4 large-sized vitamin E capsules


Place all ingredients in heat-safe measuring cup or bowl and place in double boiler, or a medium saucepan of water over low heat. Allow hot water to melt ingredients, but prevent from boiling. When all solids have melted, remove from heat and stir until well combined. Pour into chap stick tubes or lip balm jars and allow to cool completely, uncovered, before sealing or using.

Kissable Lips

To achieve kissable lips doesn’t only rely on lipstick/ lipgloss, it’s like the other makeup items on your face, you have to have a good foundation in order to let your accessories sparkle. Many people do neglect constant lip care. Me too, but I figure if I am willing to spend 25-30 mins on taking good care of them every week, it saves me so much trouble when weather turns dry or when I get older. Thanks to a Taiwan Beauty Book, I got some nice tips as follows [it’s a weekly caring, so really no need to do it everyday]:

1. Remove the dead skin on the lips but don’t ever use any face scrub or things like that on your delicate lips, it’s way too harsh. Put a thick layer of your lip moisturizer on your lips, cover them with a layer of film wrap. Then put a warm towel over the film wrap.

2. After 5 minutes, use the warm towel to gently massage over the film wrap in tiny circular movements for around 15 seconds. Take away the towel and use your forth finger to massage over the film wrap gently, again in tiny circular movements, for around 5 minutes.

3. Now, you can take away the film wrap and you should be able to see some dead skin stuck with the film wrap [oooh, your lips won’t be painful at all, don’t worry].

The Red Lipstick Rules

Q: My sister-in-law says older women shouldn’t wear red lipstick. I like to wear it because it makes me happy. What do you think?

A: It makes you happy? Then here’s what I think: The medical profession’s oath, Primum non nocere (first do no harm), is a good bottom line for all beauty concerns, including this one. Are you hurting anyone by wearing red lipstick? I don’t think so. So in the words of makeup artist Julie Hewett, “You go, girl. Get your red on!” (I would never talk like that, but I’m glad to let Julie do it.) Here are her ideas for making the most of your red lipstick experience:

Find the right shade. If you’re fair, choose a blue-based, cool crimson; if your skin is olive, try an orange-based, fire-engine red; and if you’re dark-complexioned, wear a deep, burgundy red.
